UConn coach Geno Auriemma thinks that the Big East conference's realignment issues could have been solved years ago with one simple move -- Notre Dame's football team joining the league.

"They've been in our league 17 years, so how long are we going to date beforewholesale jerseys from china. we just decide this ain't working. And I'm not happy about it," Auriemma said at the conference's annual women's basketball media day Thursday. "That's not the opinion of the University of Connecticut, the Big East Conference. ... That's just Geno Auriemma's opinion."

The Irish, whose women's basketball team is picked first in the conference's cheap nhl jerseys preseason poll, have had all their sports in the Big East with the exception of football -- which has remained independent.

Last month, Syracuse and Pittsburgh announced they were leaving the Big Easnba jerseys cheap t to join the Atlantic Coast Conference. Commissioner John Marinatto said the Big East is trying to become a 12-team football league. He reiterated on Thursday that the two schools, which are contractually bound to the league for the next two seasons, will not be allowed out early.

"If Notre Dame had come in as a football and basketball school when they came in, NFL Jerseys Cheapwe wouldn't have a problem. Miami wouldn't have left. Virginia Tech wouldn't have left. Boston College wouldn't have left. We probably wouldn't have any of these issues, would we?" Auriemma said.

The conference's plan to get to 12 members includes Navy, Air Force and Boise State as football-only members and Central Florida, Houston and SMU for all sports, though that has not been made public by the league.

The remaining football members are cheap nfl jerseysConnecticut, Cincinnati, South Florida, Louisville, West Virginia and Rutgers.

A Notre Dame spokesman declined to comment on Auriemma's remarks.

"We've got one school that holds the future of our league in the palm of their hand and they're not really that concerned about it," the UConn coach said. "They're looking out for their best interest and I don't blame them. But join us in football and then look out for your best interest. I applaud that. Every school has a right to do that. I just don't like the way we've gone about it."

While the Big East was built on basketball, Auriemma knows that expansion and conference realignment has always been driven by football.

"It doesn't matter what we think because every decision being made is being made from a football standpoint," he said.

"But if you know, that you as a school, have the ability to put a whole bunch of schools at ease and have the Catholic mentality of, 'We're here to serve and help...,'" the coach said.
